Board of Registration in Dentistry (BORID) Overview

BORID is the state agency that governs the practice of dentistry. BORID grants licenses to practice, determines continuing education requirements for dentists, dental assistants, and dental hygienists, and investigates consumer complaints. It is important for all dentists in Massachusetts to be familiar with the regulations in their entirety. 

The MDS encourages members to be especially diligent in reviewing the sections on anesthesia (234 CMR 6.00), continuing education (234 CMR 8.00), and the practice of dentistry (234 CMR 5.00).
